Innovation resources

The bioeconomy, underpinned by BBSRC-funded research, presents great economic and social opportunities. We want to make sure researchers at any stage of their career can explore the potential of their research, and acquire the skills, knowledge and contacts to develop it.

This list of useful links is not comprehensive and we are happy to consider adding new resources based on recommendations from our community.

Knowledge exchange

The term ‘Knowledge Exchange’ is applied to the sharing of knowledge that has potential impact on innovation, and to change, transform, enhance or generate new or improved professional practices, policies, technologies, products, services and public perceptions. For information about BBSRC and RCUK interpretation and actions on knowledge exchange, please click through the following links.

Intellectual property

Intellectual property management is key for developing commercial impact from your research. We suggest the guides below for finding out the basics about IP, but there are many options to explore. To explore commercialisation agreement options, see the separate list further down the page.

Commercialisation agreements

Getting robust commercialisation agreements in place is essential. Get informed about what you can expect out of the negotiations and contracts.
